I would be very grateful if you could forward the information below to people potentially interested in doing a MSc in Energy Policy.
Nothing works without energy, but our current energy systems face mounting economic, social and environmental pressures and must change radically and quickly if the world is to avoid dangerous climate change. Creating sustainable energy systems will be a defining challenge for humanity in the 21st century and one that requires professionals who fully appreciate the technological, economic and political dimensions of sustainable energy.
Our MSc aspires to educate a new generation who will play leadership roles in these challenges as well as train future energy policy professionals working in the public, private and not-for-profit sectors. This MSc builds on a world-leading research base at SPRU – Science and Technology Policy Research, including the exciting and forward-looking work of the Sussex Energy Group (SEG). The MSc is unique in combining ideas from economics, innovation studies and policy studies while requiring no prior training in these fields.
